8th Grade Open House: Hanging with the Knights
Please join us on Wednesday, January 28, from 5-7 pm in the cafeteria and media center at Higley High. We will host a special evening designed for incoming freshmen. This event is designed for students and families from our feeder school, Sossaman Middle School, as well as those considering Higley as an Open Enrollment option. This event will be an introduction to HHS, and an opportunity for potential students and parents to gather information about all we have to offer as a comprehensive high school. We will showcase course offerings, extra-curricular activities and athletics, and co-curricular options in the Fine Arts Department and throughout the elective arena. Families can tour the campus and meet with representatives from both the academic and extra-curricular arenas. This evening event is designed for 8th grade students and their parents to gain exposure to all of the opportunities we offer our students, and generate excitement about matriculating to high school and becoming a Higley Knight.
Tables will be set up in the cafeteria for activities and athletics to present information for prospective participants. Also, the media center will host the academic disciplines: English, math, science, World Language, PE/Dance, and Special Services.
